A year ago when Quentin Moore was leaving a gig playing his soulful R&B at a wedding, waxing poetic about love and happiness, a thought came to the Dallas-based songwriter: “I thought it would be fun if I had a song who talked about “If I had another chance to see you to fix things and fix things with you” but just said, “Fuck you.”

Thus, Moore’s anthem “BFU” was born, and recently received the laurels of having the one and only Snoop Dogg guest on it in a remix.
“Snoop is the icon. To this day, ‘Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang’ is one of the only rap songs I know the lyrics to … at least the first verse … Snoop’s verse,” Moore says, laughing.

“It’s so funny that 20, 30 years later I can collaborate with [him]. All this meant that the work on social media remained consistent. … I did a lot of these [B.F.U.] videos and then he started following me and BAM we got a collaboration.”

The social media work Moore refers to is a series of Tiktoks and Instareels that range in subject from “When HR denies your holiday request” to “We’re tired of that song”, and all end with the soundbite from “BFU” playing. This the viral marketing seemed to have worked for Moore, leading to the Doggfather himself knocking on his door.
“In the spring, I’d say April or May, Snoop started following me, so I was like, ‘Damn, that’s what’s going on, man…’ In the summer, a couple of videos went viral… I once went viral with a clip of Snoop. … There was a Bill Withers clip on his birthday, so what I did was a mix of breakup songs from back in the day to breakup songs today. … ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ was the song from that time and [‘B.F.U.’] was the song of the day, and it went super viral on Instagram, says Moore.

“I also posted the video and asked people, ‘Who do you think of when you hear this song?'” he continues. “A lot of people tagged Snoop Dogg and that’s probably how he found me.”

Moore messaged the rapper this summer, telling Snoop he’d like to work with him.

“To my surprise, he said, ‘As soon as I get back to town, I’m on it,'” Moore says.

“…One day he hits me up out of nowhere and says, ‘Send me an open verse of your song ASAP,’ so I sent it as soon as I could.” A week later, he received a message from Snoop. “Hello nephew, you have mail,” it said.

The email was a verse for the remix.

The holy grail of verse in hand, Moore sewed it into his song and we as an audience are better for it.

Future plans for the song are a fully animated version with Snoop and Moore killing it and telling all of life’s problems, “Bitch, Fuck You.”
